Singapore Airlines plans to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050

Published on : Thursday, May 27, 2021

The Singapore Airlines (SIA) Group has recently announced its commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. The airline said the move reinforced a long-standing strategy of working towards decarbonisation and environmental sustainability across its operations. Singapore Airlines, Scoot and SIA Cargo will be using multiple levers to achieve the goal.


The carriers will invest in new-generation aircraft, achieve higher operational efficiency, and adopt low-carbon technology such as sustainable aviation fuels and sourcing for high quality carbon offsets. SIA Group has pursued multiple projects in support of its sustainability goals even amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The group has already completed the installation of solar panels on all of its office buildings in Singapore.


The solar panel generates renewable energy that provides up to 18 per cent of its electricity demand, or enough to power around 2,300 four-room apartments in Singapore for a year. Goh Choon Phong, Chief Executive, Singapore Airlines, said in a statement that the company remained focused on sustainability goals even as it navigated the COVID-19 pandemic.


He mentioned that the airline is aware that it is also an increasingly important issue to both customers and staff. He shared that with the pledge to achieve net-zero emissions, the airline strengthens the SIA Group’s leadership position on the topic and reinforce its commitment to finding ways to tackle impact on the environment.
